She is attempting to equivocate President Obama to Hitler. Have German friends who say they had no clue what was happening. One man said he thought his stint in Hitlers youth corp was akin to boyscouts!
Have American friends of German descent who are anti Semitic! A learned behavior from ignorant parents.
In no way, shape or form have I ever suggested or implied a comparison of Obama to Hitler.

What I have strongly stated on numerous occasions, however, is the propagandists then and now are much the same.

The historic implications of the media being the voice of those in power is not exclusive to the German era during WWII.

Look at Cuba. Or Venezuela. Or Russia. Or China. Or North Korea. There are many to choose from.

Fourteen Propaganda Techniques Fox "News" Uses to Brainwash Americans
1. Panic Mongering. This goes one step beyond simple fear mongering. With panic mongering, there is never a break from the fear. The idea is to terrify and terrorize the audience during every waking moment. From Muslims to swine flu to recession to homosexuals to immigrants to the rapture itself, the belief over at Fox seems to be that if your fight-or-flight reflexes aren't activated, you aren't alive. This of course raises the question: why terrorize your own audience? Because it is the fastest way to bypasses the rational brain. In other words, when people are afraid, they don't think rationally. And when they can't think rationally, they'll believe anything.
4. Rewriting History. This is another way of saying that propagandists make the facts fit their worldview. The Downing Street Memos on the Iraq war were a classic example of this on a massive scale, but it happens daily and over smaller issues as well. A recent case in point is Palin's mangling of the Paul Revere ride, which Fox reporters have bent over backward to validate. Why lie about the historical facts, even when they can be demonstrated to be false? Well, because dogmatic minds actually find it easier to reject reality than to update their viewpoints. They will literally rewrite history if it serves their interests. And they'll often speak with such authority that the casual viewer will be tempted to question what they knew as fact.
....In debating some of these tactics with colleagues and friends, I have also noticed that the Fox viewership seems to be marked by a sort of collective personality disorder whereby the viewer feels almost as though they've been let into a secret society. Something about their affiliation with the network makes them feel privileged and this affinity is likely what drives the viewers to defend the network so vehemently. They seem to identify with it at a core level, because it tells them they are special and privy to something the rest of us don't have. It's akin to the loyalty one feels by being let into a private club or a gang. That effect is also likely to make the propaganda more powerful, because it goes mostly unquestioned.

Here's the question again.
Do you think the Germans would have exalted Hitler had they known his intentions or his SS attempt an assassination after they, too, vowed their loyalty before seeing his "darker side"?
Yes or no.
It doesn't take a book or even a library to answer this question.
You won't answer it because you'd have to admit no one saw - or could even imagine - the depths of Hitler's darker side at the onset of his reign or his rise to power.
LCN will not answer you directly. This is just another Tenzing who will keep insisting that report back to them with a list of books, blah, blah, blah.....

Both legal immigrants and illegal aliens — have accounted for all of the job gains in the U.S. labor market since 2000, according to a report that highlights the stiff competition for jobs in a tight economy as Congress debates adding more workers to the mix.

Meanwhile, the number of Americans who aren’t in the labor force at all has jumped by almost 13 million to reach 48.6 million — a finding the report’s authors say signals profound changes in the American job market and challenges conventional wisdom that immigration is good for the economy...

Rand Paul Ignorant Of History – Hitler Never Won An Election (VIDEO)

....Hitler was never elected democratically. In fact, he lost his election bid to Paul von Hindenburg, getting only 30% of the vote in the election. He did however attain the position of Chancellor, a symbolic office originally created for Otto von Bismarck in 1867 as a ceremonial title. The Chancellorship was little more than a title, and there had been 12 chancellors before Hitler took office during the Weimar Republic which was only 13-years-old at the time. However, the Nazi party in the Reichstag had influence, although it was not a majority. After losing badly at the polls in November of 1932, the Nazi party formed a coalition with the conservative German National People’s Party (DNVP) which put Hitler in the Chancellorship with DNVP leader Franz von Papen as his Vice Chancellor.

We have more (unemployed) college graduates than ever.
Two days back, another trash Liberal NPR program caught my ear. This one was about how to avoid paying back those stupid Student Loans.

Seriously. It was to help listeners to try avoiding paying back Student Loans. That's why it caught my attention.

They had two graduates being interviewed. BOTH are living with Mommy & Daddy. One is 32 years old and has a Masters Degree. What is the degree, I wondered? A few minutes later, she asked him what his Masters was for. Entertainment & Musical Media.

I began laughing. This jerk chalked up $150,000 in Student Loans to get a Masters Degree in Entertainment & Musical Media and his language included "Ya know, man..and, duh..like ya know man..."

A Masters Degree and he talks like Trayvon Martin, can't get a job and lives with Mommy & Daddy at the age of 32.

This is what the Magic Negro wants for America and, if he had his way, all of those 'Masters Degrees' would be free at taxpayer expense.

The other jerk was in no better position. And to think that THIS sort of 'unemployment' contributes to the collective compassion we are supposed to feel for these jerks for not finding employment. It's like feeling compassion for the unemployed Mexican illegals, drug dealers or Trayvon Martins.

The vote often times held up as the “Hitler was elected” proof, was the August 19th, 1934 vote which had a ballot that read simply Do you approve the consolidation of the offices of President and Chancellor in a single Leader-Chancellor? It was as legitimate as Saddam Hussein’s 100% victory, as any opposition to Hitler was met with public execution. He had already stripped the rights of Jews, the mentally ill, women, any minority group he could, which made it far easier to rig the election. During attempts to validate the votes, the number of votes cast against the dictator more than doubled during initial reviews, but then the vote validation was shut down by Hitler’s office. It did not hurt his cause when Hitler posted armed SS guards outside of each polling place with banners encouraging citizens to vote for the unification of the offices.

In other words, suppress the vote. Not unlike more modern political parties even in this country.

Hitler lost the elections, but he did not believe in democracy. He believed in the absolute power of a dictatorship. Senator Rand Paul, by continuing to spread the misleading claim that Hitler was democratically elected, is pandering to a poorly educated population. It is disrespectful to our collective intelligence, and shameful that a man who actually does hold elected office would reach so low. Rand Paul needs to open up a history book and learn the facts about history.

The problem is, facts are never a Libertarians strong suit.

"Whatever" claims it happened. As in, it's a historical event.

Funny...

He ran away once he was asked to prove his point, even after claiming he 'researches' his facts and corrects himself when he's wrong, let alone acknowledges them.
